Our football match prediction:
Hoffenheim and Bayern Munich face each other at Wirsol Rhein-Neckar-Arena in what is expected to be the most entertaining game of Saturday’s program in Bundesliga. The reigning champions aim to keep their 100% record intact, but the game against Hoffenheim will be anything but a walk in the park for the mighty Bavarians. Carlo Ancelotti’s men outplayed the likes of Werder Bremen and Bayer Leverkusen in the first two games of the season, but they will have to be at their sharpest in Saturday’s clash if they are to extend their winning run in the German top flight. Hoffenheim failed to book their place in the Champions League group stages, meaning that they will be fully focused on the national championship this season. Following a hard-fought 1-0 win over Werder Bremen, Julian Nagelsmann’s men shared the spoils with Bayer Leverkusen and we predict that they are going to grab something from the game against the title holders.
